About this book

This book introduces the concept of n-Culturalism – a play on the notation of sub-sample size indicating that multiple and different samples can exist within a body of work/research. It suggests that n-Culturals are a different type of multicultural individual, with different skills and abilities. At the same time, it contends that because n-Culturals represent a different type of multicultural, they also face different challenges that many non-multicultural individuals do not encounter. Lastly, it discusses the idea that being multicultural is manageable and offers opportunities for those who embrace it rather than avoid it.
